College Football Betting: Early Line Moves

Youngstown State converted 11 of 16 third downs en route to beating Pittsburgh 31-17 and spoiling the debut of new Panther coach Paul Cryst.

 

Meanwhile, Cincinnati was resting comfortably with an opening bye week to prepare to host the Panthers on Thursday.

The Bearcats opened as small favorites, between -1 and -3 at most books. However, bettors quickly attacked the low number and had pushed the line up to -4 by Monday morning.

Cincinnati overcame a double-digit deficit in the second half to win at Pitt as 3.5-point favorites. The Bearcats are 12-1 straight-up in home openers since 1999.
